Born in East L.A., Las Cafeteras fuses the unique sounds and Afro- Mexican rhythms, zapateado, and powerful lyrics of the Barrio.
The band will perform at 7:30 Friday, Feb. 19 at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.
The group merges roots music and modern day stories with what the Los Angeles Times has called a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip- hop, beat music, cumbia, and rock … Live, they’re magnetic.”
Their songs tell stories of a community seeking love and fighting for justice in the concrete jungle of L.A. The band blends poetry with the regional folk music style of traditional Son Jarocho for a vibrant remix. Tickets $20 to $35.
